Oklahoma City –Lt. Governor Todd Lamb served on a panel today about school-safety and touted the efforts of the Oklahoma Commission on School Security, a commission Lt. Governor Lamb founded and led. The Oklahoma Commission on School Security brought together 22 Oklahomans ranging from school superintendents and counselors to law enforcement and parents to recommend and pass four pieces of legislation to help make Oklahoma’s schools safer.
“It’s always great to share the many successes of Oklahoma,” Lamb stated. “And when it comes to the safety of our children, we want to help replicate that in other states. Too often in politics, it’s about who wins and who loses. I am proud to have been able to bring Oklahomans together to find real solutions,” Lamb continued.
Lamb spoke about 4 key aspects of the School Security Commissions work. These include:
The event was hosted by the Education Commission of the States, an organization founded in 1965 to be a counterbalance to federal involvement in education. A bipartisan group, some of the past chairmen includes noted former Republican governors Mike Huckabee (Arkansas), Tim Pawlenty (Minnesota) and John Ashcroft (Missouri).
